Beanie and Cecil’s Digging Box

Beanie and Cecil in digging box 3/01

Grass filled digging boxes can be made up in almost any container that is handy. Rye grass and a potting mix placed in a Rubbermaid type container makes up this digging box. Occasionally surprise treats are hidden to make their digging all the more enjoyable. As you can see, in this photo, the digging box shows sprouts after only two days.
Beanie and Cecil sure enjoyed spending their free time here. They always had that excited look like they had just hit treasure!.
